The Health Of Pat Burns Takes A Turn For The Worse

from QMI Agency at the Toronto Sun,

Former NHL coach Pat Burns has taken a turn for the worse, according to news reports.

The 58-year-old Montreal native has been fighting a battle with terminal lung cancer for a number of years. That battle, it appears, could end in the next few days.

Burns, who spends most of his time in Florida, has apparently returned to his home in the Quebec town of Magog and is surrounded by family.

4 teams - Coach of the Year (Jack Adams Award) with 3 and a Stanley Cup with the other. Each one accomplished in the first season with each franchise. He definitely had an instant impact on his teams. It’s also a very impressive NHL coaching record.

All the best to Mr. Burns and his family.

The only mercy in knowing when the end is coming is being able to have family around and meet it the way you choose to. I think the most terrifying thing a person could experience would be dying alone.
